Those are good as isLittle Miss Marker (both versions). I still love the line in the 80s version.

Sorrowful Jones (Matthau) after hitting a crock with a roll of coins in his fist. I said a roll of quarters!

Regret (Bob Newhart) A roll of nickels was cheaper!

It's a near toss up for me.........Jackie Gleason is great as Minnesota Fats, he should have won an Academy Award for best supporting actor. It was so natural for him because he absolutely loved pool.

Written by Damon Runyon. Do yourself a favor and read some of his short stories.
